"The Hungry Caterpillar" Quirky Art Necklace
Inspired by the illustrated book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle, this hand-painted necklace is a one of a kind, but I can make similar ideas if you would like to commission your own work of art. This necklace is very lightweight, with many layers of varnish to protect it. The pendant hangs on an invisible necklace.
Please let me know what length you would like the necklace to be, and if you are right or left handed, so I know which side to attach the clasp. Leave this information in the notes section of your order.
Measurement of pendant (cm): (L- across décolletage) 13 (W) 4 (H) 5
How to look after your Art Jewellery:
1. Do not spray with perfume
2. Long term exposure to sunlight may bleach some of the colour out
I am self taught in all creative pursuits, i have always loved dolls and pop surrealism or lowbrow art, it's a huge part of what inspires me as a milliner.
I turned 42 in January 2017 and 3 days later i decided to stop wishing i could paint so i started to paint. I have always said creativity is a muscle, the more you exercise the stronger you get but i was always scared to paint. There is so many amazing artists out there... how can i ever compete?! >.<
So through 2017 I doodled a bit and it was fun... and i made mistakes and i pushed myself... and things got a bit better... and i had soo much fun!
I have fallen madly in love with painting and dollies and i want to push myself more and i want to do bigger things and i want to learn more stuff and i want to make more mistakes and i am excited to see where this new creative journey takes me.
I guess i have learnt that i don't need to be the greatest artist in the world, only the truest, best, happiest me i can be... that is enough! This isn't just a necklace, it's is a piece of my soul, it's my love and time. I hope it will bring whoever receives it as much joy as i got from making it.
